Question about Toshiba Satellite M45-S355 (PSM40U073001) PC Notebook

1 Answer

I read that a recall on the Toshiba Satellite M45-S355 was initiated as a result of an "ESD" (Electro Static discharge) due to an engineering fault was frying hard dives in this unit from the speaker grill area.I just got this model with NO DRIVE in it and ordered a new 160 gig to install? Any way to verify this? And what might be done to prevent this from happening...The ESD was NOT initiated by WORKING ON THE unit--and was very random

I cannot find any record of a recall being issued but typically a recall will state the serial number range for affected units. Not all units will be affected since they have several plants manufacturing them and defects are usually an isolated case from a specific facility. Without that information, I wouldn't know how else you can verify whether your unit is one of the affected models or not.

Your Notebook is NOT HDMI. HDMI is a little slot connector, and is clearly marked as such if the PC has it. Close to the Video out port.

Boot Up problem on a Toshiba Satellite M45-S355


Hi,
Well, since the thread was posted, I've had an M55 come in with almost the same symptoms. I believe, in this case anyway, the video module's solder joints have started to break away from the motherboard. Very frustrating diagnostic on this.
Wish I had more help. I'd be happy to keep you posted on how this one comes out.
Thanks
